The Presidential Medal of  Freedom, the highest civilian honour, is presented to individuals who have made exemplary contributions to the prosperity, values, or security of  the United States, world peace, or other significant societal, public, or private endeavour.
 
Among the other recipients this year are Simone Biles – the most decorated American gymnast in history and former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords – the youngest woman ever elected to the Arizona State Senate and a survivor of  gun violence.
